His Dog - by Albert Payson Terhune

Free US/UK Kindle Classic

It took me awhile to find a dog book, which is free to both UK and US readers and which does not (not to give too much away) end disastrously.  I offer for your inspection, His Dog by American author Albert Payson Terhune. (US Edition)  (UK Edition)  This is a 1922 novel set in New Jersey.
Link struck a match. Shielding the flame, he pushed the tangle of grass to one side with his foot.
There, exposed in the narrow space thus cleared and by the narrower radius of match flare, crouched a dog. The brute was huddled in a crumpled heap, with one foreleg stuck awkwardly out in front of him at an impossible angle.
I didn't say it had an easy beginning!  This is the kind of story where someone becomes a better person for a chance meeting with a dog.
I want to dedicate today's to a little terrier mix who I tried to rescue this week and who did not make it.  Run free little guy!

So, you see   . . .  I had to do a dog story.
